Register of Parks and Gardens Selection Guide
This is one of four complementary selection guides which briefly describe the types of designed landscape included on The Register of Historic Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England, and set out selection criteria for designation.
This guide covers rural landscapes, mainly around private houses, including parks around country houses.
The other three guides treat Institutional and Urban landscapes, and Landscapes of Remembrance. Inevitably there are some overlaps; allotments and nurseries, for instance, are treated in the Urban guide. The listing of buildings in designed landscapes is considered in the Garden and Park Structures listing selection guide, and the scheduling of archaeological garden remains, principally but not exclusively medieval and early modern earthwork remains, is dealt with more fully in the Gardens scheduling selection guide.
